Latest Scientology legal battle unfolds in Coastal Bend as private investigators sue church - 2012-09-21
According to the lawsuit, Marrick and Arnold have a 25-year history with the church that began after the 1986 death of its founder, Hubbard. Its new leader, Miscavige, employed the two former law enforcement officers -- neither of them Scientologists -- to spy on Pat Broeker, the filing claims. Broeker claimed he, not Miscavige, was Hubbard's chosen successor.
In 2009, when Rathbun began speaking publicly about his role in the church, he described how he sent private investigators -- now identified as Marrick and Arnold -- to track Broeker.
